    Internal Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Nationwide in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was a Pay Band D position. The interview lasted 8 hours, including lunch. The Director at the time had people take a weird "brain teasers" test he made up. It was irrelevant & seemed to test how you would function under pressure & was entertainment for the Director. An interview should not last 8 hours unless it's a V.P level job or above. But a pay band D? Absurd.

    Interview Questions
    • Multiplication, division & algebraic questions that you had to do in your head. Very complex brain teasers.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They told my supervisor they were going to make me an offer. They told me what my salary was going to be & offered to pay moving expenses from San Antonio to Columbus Ohio. No negotiating.
